    I'm possibly wrong though.

    Easy te check from the chrome adresbar: chrome://gpu

    Edit: do we still have to enable video acceleration manually in chrome? Been a while I configured this machine.

    Ofcourse it could be the propertary driver :P (just kidding... nvidia's drivers are awesome).

    Nice, I like it. Finally fixed the font problem in Omnibar. Using the default theme suddenly became viable.

    Astrologers proclaim month of the PLAGUE! All populations are halved.

    Month of PLAGUE strikes web browsers. Mozilla implemends some awkward, poorly configurable australis interface, which looks like third-rate Chrome. Then it seeks to implement DRM, utterly failing their initial goal they stated when starting their project. Now Chrome in Linux looks like shit (I'm curious if Mozilla going to copy-paste this new mega-shitty appearance into Australis). I've thought browsers meant for users. But it looks like now browsers are rather meants to be used to SCREW UP their users.

    Seriously, any sane minds in this crazy worlds? This world definitely needs another strong and open browser. Which would help it users to browse web rather than screw-up users every release or so. Which would respect privacy and would not act as NSA spyware agent. And which would not look like horrible piece of shit as Chrome and Mozilla do it right now. Any sane replacements of this horrible bullshit, anyone?

    It defaults to the HTML5 player which is a CPU drain. A simple 480p vid takes 30-60% CPU + another chrome process in the background taking further 10-30% of the CPU, that's horrible. Otoh Firefox takes like 20% (the flashplugin) and 12% (FF itself) respectively.

    Using Nvidia's proprietary driver.
